HttpCookieCollection HttpCookieCollection HttpCookieCollection HttpCookieCollection Class

Definition

Provides a type-safe way to manipulate HTTP cookies.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to read cookies using the Cookies property of the HttpRequest object and write cookies using the Cookies property of the HttpResponse object. Both properties return HttpCookieCollection objects. If either of two cookies named userName and lastVisit are not in the HTTP request, then they are created in the HTTP response. If the two cookies exist, the properties of the cookies are displayed.
